Ladurée (Paris, France)
Aside from the store we visited in Versailles, we also sat down for dessert at the Ladurée along Champs-Élysées.
Because I wanted to see what the French version tasted like, I ordered the Ispahan (which I first tried at The Cake Club here in Manila). It had a thin crisp exterior, chewy rose-flavored interior, cream with rose petals raspberries and lychees. The best way I can describe the taste is that its slightly sweet and fragrant - like perfume, but in an edible way.
Of course, G ordered something chocolate - I can’t recall what it was called but it definitely looked like a puff pastry stuffed with chocolate cream, dipped in chocolate and topped with whipped cream and caramel.
